You know, certain major comic book publishers that will go unnamed should learn a lesson from Dark Horse Comics. If you want The Outhouse to stop making fun of your news, just send eight billion skillion press releases to our email and watch as we exhaust our already limited creativity and just start posting the damn things with no additional commentary.

With that in mind, here's the press release for Alex De Campi's Grindhouse:

C2E2: ALEX DE CAMPI’S GRINDHOUSE: DOORS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT!

An Eight-Issue Series Comprised of Four 48-Page Stories!

APRIL 28, CHICAGO, IL—From the floor of C2E2, Dark Horse announces a book that was almost too much for the editorial team! Eisner nominee Alex de Campi (Smoke, Ashes) headlines a B-movie comic masterpiece in Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight!

With covers by superstar artists Francesco Francavilla, Dan Panosian, and Coop, this series is excessive, gratuitous and tasteless—just like you love it.

Literature: overrated. Morality: expendable. Tonight is right for some over-the-top sex and violence! Bringing the flavor of midnight exploitation flicks to comics, Grindhouse delivers four two-issue gore operas, starting with the Chris Peterson-drawn “Bee Vixens from Mars,” pitting a one-eyed southern Latina deputy against lusty alien chicks bent on laying eggs in the entire male population!

Future arcs include “Prison Ship Anteres,” featuring art from Simon Fraser (2000 AD); “Bride of Blood,” with art by Federica Manfredi (True Blood, Hack/Slash); and “Flesh Feast of the Devil Doll,” with art by Gary Erskine (The Mask)!

“Grindhouse is the comic your mother warned you about. Seriously. You know when grownups told you comics were filthy, immoral trash? They were talking about this comic specifically,” states Alex de Campi. “Books like Grindhouse were the reason the Comics Code was invented. And if you’re in a very conservative or evangelical part of the US, you should be careful where you read it. Each story is two issues of solid gore, gratuitous nudity, and over-the-top badassery. It’s filthy. It’s violent. It’s really, really fun.”

“Bee Vixens” colorist Nolan Woodard added, “You do know I colored 28 Days Later, and this is still way more blood, right?”

 For a sneak peak at several interior pages, check out Alex de Campi's interview on Bleeding Cool.

Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight #1 is on sale October 2 in comic shops everywhere (where it’s not outlawed)!
